Two new films will be arriving in theatres this week and interestingly both of them are high on patriotism. Arjun Kapoor starrer India's Most Wanted has been making headlines ever since its trailer hit the web and wowed the masses. Directed by Raj Kumar Gupta, the action thriller is about five unsung heroes who go on a covert mission to nab India's most wanted terrorist. And they do so without firing a single bullet. Sounds super interesting, right? Currently, Bollywood biggies are going gaga over the film on social media and everyone else is looking forward to seeing Arjun in an intense avatar after a long time.

The other film releasing tomorrow is Vivek Oberoi starrer PM Narendra Modi. Yes, the much talked about biopic which has been in the news since its announcement is finally hitting the screens. Initially, the Modi biopic was supposed to release on April 12 but the release got pushed due to the 17th Lok Sabha Elections. As the title suggests, the movie is about Narendra Modi and his rise in the political world. While Omung Kumar's directorial venture has courted many controversies, the film seems well placed at the box office especially now that PM Modi seems to be winning the elections yet again.
So will Vivek starrer take a huge opening at the Indian box office courtesy BJP's impressive performance in the elections? Or will Arjun Kapoor race ahead with his promising action thriller? According to trade pundits, India's Most Wanted will earn around Rs 3 crore on day 1. While the film has a decent pre-release buzz, a lot will depend on positive word of mouth. If Arjun starrer opens to good reviews during the morning the shows then the collections could slightly go up. As for the Modi biopic, despite all the brouhaha, the political drama may not rake in more than Rs 2 crore on the first day.

Going by the predictions, both the films are pretty much at par as of now. However, India's Most Wanted does have an upper hand because of Kapoor as he is clearly a more bankable star than Vivek at the moment. So let's wait and see if Arjun's popularity reigns over Vivek's controversial film or not.
